Specific company particulars in commercial E-Mail correspondence in Germany


22.05.2007 (Kö) Rechtsanwaltskanzlei Bartholl and our partners already emphasized an important change in German legislation on specific company particulars in commercial E-Mail correspondence.

Businesses in Germany were obligated already in the past to state specific company particulars in their letterhead in the course of trade. These specific company particulars need to be communicated now in all E-Mail correspondence as well. This means that all company particulars given in the letterhead have to be disclosed in every single E-Mail in the same way.

In January 2007 many E-Mails in commercial correspondence in Germany still have been sent without the necessary company particulars established by German law. Instead of communicating the new obligatory company particulars, many E-Mails only state incomplete specifications or even unnecessary E-Mail-disclaimers without meaning and legal relevance. We suggest setting up a plain and legally proper text module. You should inform your colleagues and team members to pay attention to use this E-Mail module in future E-Mail correspondence.

German law case concerning German Travel Law and the consequences of cancelling the contract

The decision of the judgement by the Amtsgericht Neuwied of 31.03.2006 in case 4 C 27/06 obtained by Bartholl law office contains an important elaboration of the requirements for a traveller to cancel the contract because of a situation of force majeure, like a hurricane, a terrorist attack, SARS epidemy or the AVIAN influenza. If the traveller exercises the right to cancel the contract, the legal effects of such cancellation are stated by section 651j of the German Civil Code (BGB). The notice of termination due to force majeure by sec. 651j BGB states in para. 1: "If the trip is substantially obstructed, jeopardised or impaired as the result of force majeure not foreseeable when the agreement was entered into, then both the travel organiser as well as the traveller may give notice to the agreement simply under the provisions of such stipulation". But several requirements are uncertain and their interpretation is controversy discussed. The judgement states the conditions for the duty to provide information to the traveller by the travel organiser. The judgement is publish in the German monthly ReiseRecht aktuell in edition 4/2006 on page 169.
